Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database ( has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

Polikarpov I-15 seen in Wings of Russia.

The Polikarpov I-15 was a Soviet biplane fighter aircraft of the 1930s. Nicknamed Chaika which means Seagull in russian because of its gulled upper wings, it was still in large numbers in the VVS (Soviet Air Force) when Barbarossa started on 22nd June 1941. It was already used in combat in Spain (1936 - 1939), in China (from 1937) and in Mongolia (1939).
The variant I-15 bis (also known as I-152) had a straight upper wing.
The I-153 (sometimes named I-15ter) had a retractable landing gear and the "gulled" upper wing of the original I-15.

Nearly 7,000 Polikarpov I-15s of all types were built between 1934 and 1941.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Polikarpov I-15, I-15bis/I-152 or I-15ter/I-153.
